Good live show, definitely a lot more energetic than I expected. Got there late and missed the first couple of songs, was walking in as they were starting Summer Skin. Pretty Plans-heavy, but that was to be expected. From what I remember, we got Company Calls, Photobooth, Movie Script Ending, What Sarah Said, Soul Meets Body, I Will Follow You into the Dark, and the main set ended with We Looked Like Giants and Transatlanticism. Encore was Marching Bands, Expo 86, a cover I was unfamiliar with (by this band called The Sonics), and Sound of Settling to end it all.

One thing that really stuck out was that they take literally no time in between songs. They're practically running around the stage to go from one song to the next. Definitely wasn't used to that. :lol

Certainly worth checking them out if you get the chance.

Not familiar with their stuff. Bill, if I wanted to grab something to listen and check them out, what would you suggest?

Transatlanticism is probably their best album; I'd start there. Plans and We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes are both kind of mixed bags.

this means you missed Ted Leo, which I assume would be the best part of this show.

I don't really care for Ted Leo at all. Having gone to school in RI for 4 years and working at my college radio station, I've had a lot of chances to check him out and I really just never got into him.

They were pretty good when I saw them... but thought it was way too short. Wasn't even an hour and a half. If they had played a couple more songs I would've been happy.
